1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slouchy hat! on: May 01, 2012 04:36:49 PM
I love the look of slouchy hats and have been making quite a few.
This yarn is so soft and comfortable, it really makes the hat.

On to the pictures!

Please, tell me what you think! I know it's simple, and I've made other, more detailed ones. I really like the simplicity of this one.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Yoshi Mailbox Crosstitch on: May 26, 2010 10:44:45 PM
I've never posted in this Forum before, guys. I believe this is the right spot!

I recently participated in the Super Mario Bros. Swap, and my partner loves Yoshi as much as I do, so I cross stitched her this Yoshi mailbox (from Super Mario World), and hot glued it into a frame.

I used plastic canvas, which is a lot easier to cross stitch on, and I bought a cheapo frame at my local WalMart and just hot glued it to the plain white paper that was already there. It was too thick, so I couldn't keep the glass over it, obviously.

Here are a couple pictures Cheesy

Slightly blurry picture of it in the frame:

Less blurry, closer up picture:

This is one of my first few cross stitching projects, and definitely my first project using plastic canvas. I love the cute little squares it makes.
Let me know what you think, please!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yoshi Potholder! on: May 26, 2010 10:36:00 PM
Hey folks!
I participated in the recent Super Mario Bros swap (Original Thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=341605.0), and one of the items I made (the one which I am most proud of) was a potholder!

I crocheted the actual potholder part in tunisian crochet, and then cross stitched Yoshi's head on it. Then a friend did the black border, because she was helping me with my ideas. I sewed some fabric on the back of it to give it some bulk so that it was actually functional, and... voila!
Yoshi Potholder Cheesy

On to the pictures!

The potholder itself with the image of Yoshi:

This shows the thickness and color of the backing.

That's all, guys! Let me know what you thought.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Some crochet bags and such on: May 09, 2010 09:51:37 PM
Hey Craftster People!
I haven't posted in a million years...

I'm posting about a few Dungeons & Dragons dice bags I made for my boyfriend. Nothing too special, but he's been bugging me to post them for a few months now, so here they are, along with a WIP bag I made for myself!
Didn't want to crowd the board with too many topics Smiley

This purple one is pretty tiny; for just one set of dice.

The second one I made is a lot bigger, and holds a lot of extra dice that he has.

Then, I needed a bag to hold all of my WIP crochet things. I figured I'd just do a stashbuster bag to get rid of some yarn. I wound up wishing I'd used the top yarn for something else, because I really liked the way it came out.

Top view so you can see that it holds a lot Cheesy

The bottom; I used really thick course yarn for this so it's stable.

Action shot! The boyfriend is pretty proud of this one, haha. He's so enthusiastic Cheesy

I didn't get a good picture of it, but there are small crochet flowers where the handles connect to the bag, on the frontside.

After I made this I started to bring it in to work, and a bunch of the girls asked me to make them one. They've yet to bring in the yarn they want me to use, but just the thought of them liking it that much was cool Cheesy

Comments and critcism welcome~!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Afghan Done for Christmas on: March 20, 2009 12:59:50 AM
Yes, it was done before Christmas. Barely, but I made it.

It was for my boyfriend, J, but I think I've stolen it from him a number of times already...

It's a simple square, I believe. I was trying or a rectangle; I'm not sure what went wrong.

Chillin' on the loveseat...

The colors, a bit better...

For size reference, I'm five foot tall.

So he really liked it. I was so glad. It's the biggest thing I've ever made, but it's too small for him. I've been thinking of just adding to the top and bottom. Any suggestions?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple Scarf ~ Two-toned Green on: July 02, 2007 03:39:31 PM
Okay, so I've been a member of Craftster for... not that long. This is my first topic-post, and I'm really proud of this simple little scarf <3

Longwinded Backstory (optional): My cousin was just learning to crochet, and he was starting a scarf, but was doing it length-wise and didn't want to contine. He came over to help me with a college application thing, and decided he'd wait until I saw the scarfling before he frogged it. It was like a long rope, and I couldn't really tell where any of the stitches were, but it was so cute~ He decided to start over, and while he was talking to my husband after helping me with the app, I started to crochet a scarf. He was using a J hook, and I was like OMG at the size of it (it's now officially the largest hook I've ever used), but I got used to it. I was some rows into it when I decided that it would be rather boring as one big hunter-green length, and wanted to add in a stripe. I've never changed colors at the end  of a row, so it was new and exciting.

I was only going to do one stripe, but then I thought it would look good as a striped scarf, so I continued, and it just happened that I was exactly 10 rows in when I stuck the first stripe in. Since the lighter green yarn was WAY bulky, I used my H hook, so that the stitches would be relatively the same. This was also the second project I've ever actually weaved in the ends on. Believe me, from now on? I'll leave the ends in excess of 6in DX

On to the pictures! The only part you came for Tongue

I had my lovely husband model it. He was only a bit reluctant~

Excuse the boxer-shot. He's about 5'10", so the scarf is relatively huge. I wasn't exactly sure how long it SHOULD be, so I measured by having him put it on while I was still working on it, for reference.

I think the colors are most true in this shot. It's storming outside, so I can't use natural light >_<;

This worked up SO fast. About half a day, really. And I'm so proud of it, but mostly I'm proud of weaving in all those pesky ends. Yay~

Thanks for looking!
